Rob Kardashian has reportedly been charged with battery and petty theft after he allegedly attacked a photographer and stole his camera this past March.

According to the criminal complaint obtained by TMZ, the 26-year-old has been charged with misdemeanor counts of both crimes.

The photographer, Andra Viak, who also uses the name Kassandra Perez, filed a robbery report claiming that Kardashian stole her camera equipment outside a West Hollywood gym, because she attempted to take shirtless photos of him.

Viak has also filed a civil suit against the sock designer, in which she claims Kardashian "intentionally, willfully, wantonly and maliciously ran" at her after she took shirtless photos of him in a public parking lot. According to E! News, she also claims she was "struck in the face and suffered severe contusions on her arm and chest, as well as damage to her property" as a result of Kardashian's "violent use of force."

Viak alleged in her suit that once Kardashian was successful in snatching her camera away from her, she tried to placate the situation, telling him that she would show him how to delete the photos from the camera himself, but the former "Dancing With The Stars" contestant "removed the camera's memory card, threw the camera back at Plaintiff and left with Plaintiff's memory card stating, 'I'll pay you when I see you.'"

According to TMZ, Kardashian claims he lashed out at Perez because she trespassed onto private property to take the photos.
